The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937

Basketball Club

Basketball Club

This year we entered a Senior A and a Senior B team in the Association matches.

The Senior A team has been doing well and stands about half-way in the grade of the Association matches.

The Senior B team has suffered from lack of new player. Some of the players have been outstanding, but it has been hard to keep up the standard of play, because the team has been changed so many times during the year.

The Club has been very fortunate in securing Mr. Max Riske as coach, and the practices which have been held in our own Gym. Have been fairly well attended.

One of our players, Miss Phillips, is in the Senior A "B" representative team, and Miss Kniveton is in the Senior B representative team which is going to Canterbury.

After numerous keen practices, the Tournament team was well up to standard; beating Otago and Canterbury quite easily, and also beating Auckland after a very close game. So Victoria holds the Basketball Shield for 1937.

Three of our team were awarded New Zealand University Blues, R. Drummond, M. Bell and S. Phillips, and nine of our A team were awarded V.U.C. Blues.
